Book Review: The MIND Diet: A Scientific Dietary Approach to Enhancing Brain Function 

Are you a person that is into watching what you put in your body? Maybe you are a person that likes to know how certain foods interact with your body and their benefits? If yes, I want to introduce you to a great insightful book that will help you to look at foods in a new way. This book is sure to help your entire family! 

The book that I am referring to is the The MIND Diet by Maggie Moon, MS, RDN a registered dietitian nutritionist. The MIND Diet is the first comprehensive book and recipe collection that details the research findings on which foods and nutrients benefit and harm brain function. This diet is based upon two proven diet regimes which are the Mediterranean and DASH (dietary approach to stop hypertension) diets. These two ways of eating have been studied for many decades and practiced for centuries.

The diet’s has 10  primary food groups which are vegetables, green leafy vegetables, tree nuts, beans,berries, poultry, fish, whole grains, olive oil, and wine. The recipes that this book offers are very flavorful and easy to prepare. Some dishes that you can enjoy from this book are Quick Chicken-Tortilla Soup, Blueberry, Peach, and Avocado Salad and much more! 

The MIND Diet is a very well-written book which I find has many detailed many foods to help foster brain function. I definitely recommend this book if you’re looking for one to help give you awesome insight on how to prevent cognitive decline. There are tons of detailed recipes included in the book. I love the desserts, as I occasionally get a sweet tooth. They are not overly sweet and they curb the sweet tooth while also providing nutrients. Excellent! 

You can find this book wherever books are sold. Happy reading!
